United Methodist Women (UMW)


We meet on the 1st Saturday of each month at 9:30am in the West Wing (excluding June, July, & August)

United Methodist Women (UMW) is the largest denominational faith organization for women in the nation, with approximately 800,000 members. Our mission is to foster spiritual growth, develop leaders, and advocate for justice. The main focus is women, children, and youth. There are UMW units in United Methodist churches worldwide.

Our goal is to expand our concepts of mission and participate in outreach programs that focus on women and children, both locally and around the world.

The UMW unit at Central United Methodist Church meets the first Saturday of each month (excluding June, July, and August) at 9:30 am in the south meeting room (West Wing) of the church.

Our focus is on the needs of the church, the community, and worldwide mission. We enjoy programs, devotions, guest speakers, and Christian fellowship.

Projects vary depending on need. Recently we prepared Health Kits for disaster response efforts by our United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), the humanitarian agency of the United Methodist Church nationwide.

We host two rummage sales a year, which not only raise funds for our service projects, but also offer high-quality, low-cost everyday necessities to the local community. Members meet most Wednesday mornings to organize rummage sale items.

Each year we read and discuss books selected for the UMW Reading Program, a nation-wide effort to keep women informed on current topics in our complex world.

Although our group is small in size, it is part of something much bigger. When we as United Methodist Women worldwide put out hearts and hands together in service, we can make a difference!

All women are welcome to attend our meetings. We are a creative, supportive fellowship of women worldwide who seek to know God and experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ.

Come to our next UMW meeting and experience the warmth of women in fellowship and service. You are welcome here!
